Definitely don't be embarrassed about that.

My rule of thumb is: If a movie has a wizard in it, you can pretty much count me out.

What is your list?

1) Godfather
2) Alien

3) It's a Wonderful Life
4) Bad Boys 2
What. The. ****.

How?

If you get a chance to see Lawrence of Arabia on a movie screen do yourself the favor and go. It's the definition of a movie that needs to be seen in theaters.

Of the rest of your list I'd prioritize Big Lebowski, Cool Hand Luke, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The rest were all good movies (except maybe Clockwork Orange, even the creator hates it) but those three are the most memorable to me.

Well, from that list- Cool Hand Luke is one of my favorite movies. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest as well. I'd also recommend Blade Runner if you happen to enjoy science fiction and film noir.

I haven't seen The Godfather films. I haven't seen the Harry Potter films, either.

I have, however, watched Wizard People, Dear Reader in its entirety:

A lot of movies in the last year and a half (since my son was born):
Star Trek, Transformers, Avatard, and a few others probably

I would watch The Big Lebowski with friends and they would be all about it. It was ok...but I'm not going to build a personal philosophy around The Dude.

Avatar is a very pretty, but very straight line story. If you have seen Dances With Wolves, you have seen Avatar, sans blue people.

Transformers was a good popcorn flick. So was the sequel.

Star Trek was interesting. In fact I think it sparked a nerd debate in here over canon and storyline and the "impossibilities" of several plot points...

Oh god, I almost mentioned that when Harry Potter came up. So, so great. Most of it can be found on Youtube now:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPVhmZodaLA


"Oh my God! Is Harry going to vomit? Of course not! Like a viper, Harry used his voracious mouth as his catcher. He's got that Snitch in his animal belly, and Pop! it is out! They've won! One hundred thousand points for ****ing Gryffindor!

The crowd goes absolutely bazonkers! The champions in red and yellow are the victors, and Harry is spent. The crowd is destroying its throats calling Harry's name. Harry feels right with himself. He's down there, a new god who has found a calling.

He holds up that Snitch and bellows:

'I am a beautiful animal!

'I am a destroyer of worlds!

'I am Harry ****ing Potter!'

And, dear readers, at last the world was quiet."

Space-time was disrupted by the bad guy, causing a "reset" of the Star Trek universe.

Citizen Kane
Boondock Saints (JUST saw this, but I figure it should make the list)
Se7en
A Clockwork Orange
Blade Runner (I'm a huge sci-fi fan, and I just could never sit through more than 15 minutes of this)

Fun random fact about Citizen Kane...do you know what Rosebud really is and not just what it is in the movie? It's actually William Randolph Heart's nickname for his girlfriend's uh, well what do you think a rosebud looks like? Citizen Kane is basically a thinly veiled version of Hearst. It's one of my very favorite movies but I love old movies. Cannot help it. I like his use of light and dark contrasting visuals. Just do.

As for films I was apparently supposed to see and don't really give a rats but to see, pretty much all the Harry Potter films.

I did take a lot of crap for not seeing Apocalypse Now, but I finally saw it, though can't say I liked it that much and I couldn't understand anything Marlon Brando said.

I finally saw Unforgiven after being given a ration of grief about it, and I did like that.

Oh wait, I know which one I haven't seen that guys get all weird about, Scarface. I've seen the 1930s version, but never the Pacino. I just can't watch it because it looks like Al Pacino overacting a lot, which I never like (Scent of a Woman, Godfather III - though I like the first 2).

Yeah, I've got no real interest in seeing Avatar either, if I happen to borrow it from someone who has the DVD or something, I'll watch it. I do want to see the others though.

I used to be a big time movie person, but my wife isn't. So my movie watching cut down a little bit when we got married (more guy movies with the guys, so that's ok still), but it really dropped off when my son was born. We brought him home the night of the Az/Pitt Superbowl, so I don't remember much of that game either

Wow. A Buffy fan who thinks al Pacino overacts and loves the broncos. Be still my heart.

Good Lord you haven't seen any of those classics - not a movie buff I see.

Seriously any one of those films provide a great cinema experience.
Although Se7en is quite disturbing an will haunt you for a while

Honestly, unless you're single I don't know if I would recommend it. I still think about it every now and again and I saw it years ago.

When Scarface came out I must have seen it 7 times while it was in the theater. We went every week for at least a month taking a differnet friend who hadn't seen it yet. We did the same for Terminator but I was one of the last so I only saw it twice in the theater.

Once I got out of HS I stopped going to see the same movie over and over in the theater.

BTW Scarface was better on the big screen it doesn't translate as well at home on TV.

Huge movie buff here as most of you know, but for the life of me I can't sit through 99% of the "classics" made before 1960 or so. Just can't do it. The style of acting simply isn't for me.

Only recent classic I can think of off hand that I haven't seen is Schindler's List.
